    Campus Safety

    The campus is located in a safe neighborhood and with the college connected to the hospital security is always roaming the campus. Students never feel like they are in danger. The city of Lincoln, NE is also a very safe town to live in.

    Greek Life

    Being a small specialized school unfortunaty the college lacks Greek Life.

    Clubs and Activities

    Along with the yearly volleyball tournament the college as a winter dance and a spring dance. There is not many thing to do at the college, but you will soon become friends with a lot of classmate due to the small size of the school.

    Great for these types of students

    BryanLGH is a great school for any student looking to become a competent and well rounded nurse or health care professional. The college is a specialized school that really gets the student prepared for the real world.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    As mentioned above the college hosts a yearly sand volleyball tournament. Students at the college get teams together and play against each other. And for any history buffs William Jennings Bryan's house is on campus. He ran for president three different times and the hospital is named after him.

    Bang for the buck

    The school tuition is relatively expensive, but with the small size of the school students get a lot of one-on-one time with the teachers. The school uses the hospital for most of its clinical time. This is helpful because you do not have to go far. The hospital along with the school is very well known throughout the Midwest.

    What to do for fun

    The school has a yearly volleyball tournament, and the school has a lot of opportunities to volunteer and get involved with the school. Also BryanLGH is in the same town as the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Attending sport events is very easy to attend.

    Food and Dining

    The school is connected to BryanLGH East Hospital. The hospital gives students discounts to eat there. There is a wide verity of food which is all very good, but the cafeteria does have limited hours of operation.

    Dorm Life

    There are not any dorm rooms. This to me is the biggest down side to the school. The school will help you find a roommate and a place to live. The college used to have a dorm in the past, but I would guess due to the small population of students they removed the dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    BryanLGH will challenge you. They try to push you so by the time the NCLEX Exam comes around you will be ready for it. BryanLGH does not have a cadaver lab, however, they are remodeling their science labs to have a cadaver lab, and the college is also one of the only colleges that have human palatinates.

    Tips for prospective students

    Study, get to know your classmates and teachers, but most of all have fun. Getting involved in college activities will also help get to know the people that will be around you for the next 4 years.

    In three sentences

    BryanLGH College of Health Sciences is a small intimate school. The classmates that you are with are going to be with you for four years and the teachers will teach multiple class that you are in. They will all help you grow and push you to be your best and you will do the same for others.

    Campus Safety

    Because the college is located on hospital grounds, there is security on staff 24/7.

    Greek Life

    unfortunately, none.

    Clubs and Activities

    For a smaller school they have quite the assortment of activities, mostly volunteering around the community with groups such as the Red Cross and Tabitha Health Care.

    Great for these types of students

    Study, take notes and again, get to know the staff!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The only thing unusual about the two campuses is that they are both built in to the hospitals themselves.

    Bang for the buck

    It is a little pricier than a community college, but the one on one attention and the extra clinical hours make it hard to even compare the price to a traditional university. Definitely worth the little bit of extra money.

    What to do for fun

    There are many activities and clubs that anyone can sign up for, including involvement in the Red Cross and other healthcare organizations.

    Food and Dining

    The only cafeteria is the one located in the hospital, but the food itself is almost comparable to a few homemade dishes, but it is hospital food.

    Dorm Life

    There is no on campus housing.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes can be tough, but you learn A LOT as long as you take notes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make as many friends as possible and get to know the entire staff! :)

    In three sentences

    BryanLGH College of Health Sciences has some of the most friendly and helpful staff! They are ALWAYS willing to take time out of their busy schedules to help out a student (this includes teaching and coordinating staff). Because of this, BryanLGH makes you feel welcome and at home, no matter where you are from.

    Campus Safety

    There is never a moment i fell unsafe here. Also, majority of the students are VERY trust worthy. If i leave my stuff sitting around I know it will be there when i get back.

    Greek Life

    Currently there is none.

    Clubs and Activities

    We have student government, action for student, a christian club, Red cross, and a nursing club.

    Great for these types of students

    Anyone interested in nursing. Also great for any age group of people whether they are traditional or not.

    Bang for the buck

    For a private and nursing college it is very well priced.

    What to do for fun

    Bryan holds events to let all the students get together. For example last semester they hired a comedian. We also have intramural volleyball, and hold other miscellaneous events.

    Food and Dining

    Since there isn't on campus living we do not have a huge cafeteria, but we do have places to eat, and even get discounts with our student card

    Dorm Life

    Currently Bryan does not have any on campus housing. I love living in my apartment however, and my roommate goes to Bryan as well. We met at a roommate roundup.

    Academic Rigor

    Overall, it depends on the course. My anatomy course is by far the hardest class i have ever taken in my life. On the other hand, Bryan offers fun classes like yoga and sign language.

    Tips for prospective students

    Start off strong in the beginning. Slacking off early can make it stressful. Bryan can be a challenging college, but in the end it is so worth it.

    In three sentences

    Overall, I love Bryan. It has a great student to professor ratio with its small class sizes. Also, its strictly a health college, so all my Gen Eds have a health related twist to them.

    Campus Safety

    We're in a hospital, it is fairly safe. Plus there's always security on campus.

    Greek Life

    None.

    Clubs and Activities

    For a small college, they have numerous clubs, organizations, committees, and such to participate in.

    Great for these types of students

    Serious, focused, and determined students should apply. Also, know that good grades are a must! C+ (in every course-- general education and core courses) is the college's minimum to be considered passing, but you'll get a referral to the Success Center if an exam grade is below an 80%.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Capping and pinning is still done for the juniors. This is a very old tradition that most nursing schools have done away with or left for graduation. We also visit many odd or unusual places for clinicals, such as an insane asylum (or mental institution). It is very creepy.

    Bang for the buck

    Bryan is expensive, but its a private, medical school-- what else do you expect? However, the course work and intensity of the program is for those who are serious about their education. They make sure you get your money's worth.

    What to do for fun

    You will get to know your classmates so well! They will become your best friends by the time you graduate! Student government also sets up events like movie nights, bowling, dances, and more.

    Food and Dining

    The food is hospital food. Its delicious and somewhat healthy, but expensive.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms, but by junior year you pretty much live at the hospital.

    Academic Rigor

    Its a tough school. They challenge you on a daily basis. There will be break down moments, but in the end it motivates you so much more. Upon graduation, you'll feel like you're well prepared to start working.

    Tips for prospective students

    Professionalism and compassion toward others goes a long way! Be prepared to work hard, this school's standards and expectations of their students are held pretty high.

    In three sentences

    Bryan College of Health Sciences completely surpassed my expectations. I am incredibly impressed with the amount of dedication and compassion this school has for their students. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't go anywhere else!

    Campus Safety

    We are connected directly to the hospital and have our own security so we are very well protected. Never have I felt scared or uncomfortable on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Nursing is not only for women. We have a growing population of male nurses attending. Not only do we have a nursing program but we have a Biomedical program which is a prerequisite to medical school.

    Bang for the buck

    We are a private college and a little expensive but in fact we are one of the cheapest private colleges. Not to mention you get hands on learning and many clinical hours. This prepares us to feel completely comfortable for when we graduate and start working.

    What to do for fun

    Even though we aren't a traditional college we do have many activities to get involved in. There are many groups to join but even if you are not in a group you will get emails about events around the college. Just this December we rented a bus and went to Omaha to drive around and look at Christmas lights. Not to mention we had an ugly sweater contest.

    Food and Dining

    Because we are directly connected to the hospital we can travel over there at any time. This is great because they really do have good food. And we get a ten percent discount with our badges.

    Dorm Life

    We actually do not have dorms but many students live in apartments near by that are discounted through the college.

    Academic Rigor

    This is a tough college but is not out of your reach. I came right out of high school and it was definitely a change. There is no way you can just surf through these courses. You will really have to apply yourself but the staff is extremely willing to help.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are wanting to attend this college make sure to turn in your general application in early. By doing so you can waive the application fee.

    In three sentences

    Bryan College of Health Sciences is a great school for hands on learners. All the professors are very approachable. This college wants you to succeed and will do what they need to to help.
